Well Susan as you know last summer was a very bad year for Mosquito Lake.
The sailboats were all dry docked by mid July and the public docks were pulled early as well.

Even as I write the situation at the lake is not looking at all well.
I don't think we've had much more than a foot of snow so far this winter and what little was on the ground has melted off having little to no effect on the lake level.

Right now believe it or not it's almost 60 degrees and partly sunny after some minor showers this morning.
In fact I'm hearing bikes rolling down the road.
You bet I'll be joining them ; )

But if we don't get a good amount of snow very soon or at least more rain there's no way the lake will recover by spring.
We really need that major winter melt off in the worst way this year.

But as dry as Mosquito Lake is it's nothing compared to the Berlin Resivor just a little Southwest of here.
Berlin is much larger than Mosquito Lake and is a major water supplier for a big section of Northeast Ohio.

I had heard Berlin was in bad shape but I was absolutely shocked when I drove over the causeway last Sat.
It's not much more than a big puddle right now.

I could be wrong but I don't think it's ever been this dry for this long around here.
With almost no winter last year and then a summer of record heat it didn't take long for the water levels to fall in most of the rivers,lakes and streams.

I don't think most people realized how important the seasonal snowfall totals and spring melt off is to the health and well being of our lakes and waterways.
I never thought I'd say it but "I hope we get some major snow events soon"

    Excellent report on the lakes, surprised you didn't get the snow off Lake Erie this year.
